Hi everyone!
I have a weird Alexa question.  Prior to signing up to the Yakezie challenge yesterday, our Alexa score was hovering right around 1,800,000. 
I checked this morning and it was at a whopping 13,000,000!

When I checked my Alexa score this evening, it's at 1,636,538.

What the heck is going on with the crazy pendulum swing?
Can anyone give us any insight on what could've happened?  

 

Thanks for the insights!

A glitch of some sort no doubt. I really wouldn't focus too much on your score every day. Just post regularly, comment on other people's blogs, engage with your readers, etc. 

 

Check your score again in 2 weeks or a month and you'll see much better progress.

 

Its like dieting and checking your weight every day. The bizarre daily fluctuations can actually impede your progress!

Thank you! I kinda thought so :-) Yes, we are focused on doing the commenting + engagement + posting.
It's been 2 days and it's already been so cool to be part of!

I try to ignore what Alexa says and does on a daily basis. Sometimes it does quirky stuff like that. As someone else mentioned, it's usually best to watch it over time. Over time you'll surely see it drop, and probably quicker than you think :-)

I've just come across this old-ish post and noticed that your current alexa ranking is down to 168k. Amazing progress in under 3 months guys – keep it up!!
